Seasonal Saturdays: Winter – A yin/yang journey for the seasonal yogi
A series of Seasonal Immersions delivered around the change of each season, designed to help you stop, ground, centre, connect with and feel as an integral part of the ever changing world around you.
These 2hr sessions are perfect for those who would like to explore in more detail both the yinand yangaspects of a balanced Yoga practice, as they relate to the changing seasons.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine(TCM), Winter is the season of the Water Element, Kidneys (yin) & Bladder (yang). The Kidney system is thought to be the storage house of Jing, our life essence or internal ‘batteries’. Through the practice of asana(posture), pranayama(breath), mudra(symbolic gesture), and mantra(sound), connecting with the flow & rhythm of Water in the subtleties of bothyinand yangstyles, we aim to nourish and recharge our Jing,helping us to feel strong but relaxed as we move forward through the coldest months of Winter.
